thing to vote against it when you're squandering a bill clinton surplus on tax cuts for those who don't need tax cuts pre-2008. it is another thing when you're trying to climb out of a recession. >> that's exactly right. there is a lot of misunderstanding about the debt ceiling. most americans think the debt ceiling is congress giving itself permission to spend more money. when they understand it is about do we default on our bills they say what? you're not going to pay your bills? that's what the debt ceiling is about. one of the things i advocated was the restoration of the gephardt rule that said when congress voted for a budget, let's say it voted for the iraq war that cost a trillion dollars, then at the moment that they voted for that program the debt ceiling would be adjusted up or down to reflect the budget they just voted for. that's what most americans would do. so this debt ceiling is all about hypocrisy. it is all about pretending that we have an option about paying our bills. by the way, a lot of the bills we have to pay are things i was adamantly opposed to. i didn't wan

and it calls him this. >> mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> president obama has secret service protection for his daughters, sasha and malia. asking if the president's kids are more important than yours. oh, my goodness, secret service protection, pretty customary for the president and his family. more bill next. these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. before the sneeze, help protect with a spray. before the tissue, help defend with a wipe. before the cold & flu season help prevent with lysol. because when you have 10 t

pay their fair share of taxes. but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> yes, an elitist hypocrite who is the president. anyway his plan today will include calls for congressional action on an assault weapons ban, a limitation on the sale of high-capacity magazines, also taking a look at stronger, federal background checks for anyone who wants to buy a firearm. at the moment, senate democratic leadership seems split on whether or not we're going to get any action through congress. majority leader harry reid is skeptical we can get anything past republicans in the house but at the same time, minority whip steny hoyer is more optimistic. he's hopeful that perhaps his colleagues in the house will be more flexible after what happened at sandy hook elementary. we're back with more show after the break. show, to be able to come away armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for somethi

to handle things so that taxes were withheld, everything was on the up and up. he submitted a business permit to the city of sacramento. that's the sort of people that the obama justice department said they are not going to go after. >> cenk: molly, how many kids do you have? >> two. >> cenk: hold are they? >> an 18-month-old daughter and 3-year-old daughter. >> cenk: what you are going to do if matt goes to jail for seven years. >> that's not going to be easy. >> cenk: how are you going to make a living? how are you going to support the kids? >> that's a good question. i don't know the answer to that now. >> cenk: can you believe your government is doing this to you even though what you guys are doing are perfectly legal in your own state. >> well, it's shocking. you know, from the beginning from the beginning, when, you know, there was first a search warrant served, you know, on a warehouse, when a search warrant was served on our home, it was shocking all the way through but each time i thought that's ok, they're do an investigation and see that we're within state guidelines and fol

into the air but you're also losing money. as a former governor, you're also losing tax revenue depending on your state's structure for drilling. if it's federal land, the government wants that little revenue stream from gas. >> jennifer: i'm just so curious, i've actually been dying to talk to you. you are the guy who follows this stuff closer than almost anybody, and you have such an objective hat on. everybody has talked about the problems with natural gas fracking, and the potential of co2. the question bottom line, can we do this safely and lead in producing natural gas as a way of exporting it to other countries, to china, for example, to help them lower their co2 footprint to address climb change? >> i wrote several pieces about china has a huge amount of gas in the ground there shale gas as well. a lot of experts i've talked to they say the best thing to do is advance our technology to extract the gas here, to the lng liquified exports to balance our trade across the pacific but you do need oversight. this is not going to work out right withouted a adequate oversight. there was a

, scott gave a 1.6 million tax subsidy to colt manufacturing in 2011. is there any logic behind this? >> well, the logic i think is that of they believe the only problem this country has is the millionaires and billionaires don't have enough money. and if we keep stuffing money into their pockets somehow everything will come up roses. that's been their plan from the start. they're pretty explicit about it. no form of corporate welfare that governor scott has been against but if you talk about actually seeing to it that happenky dapped children -- handicapped children can be hope with their families, suddenly there's no money for that. >> john: last week in response to crittism is from you and children, florida launched a so-called enhanced care program which would enlist 28 nurse care coordinators to would, with the families and the nursing homes treating the disabled children. is this close to adequate? 28 people for the whole state of florida? >> no, of course not. we have 20 million people in the state of florida. we have tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of children who ar

the program happens to be. a new war. a new tax cut for the rich. they demand the spending. and then they have to -- it comes time to pay the bills. raising the debt ceiling means we agree we're going to pay the bills that congress has already spent. right? we're going to pay for the stuff that congress has already bought. as a president i thought it was an excellent analogy yesterday. you don't go to a restaurant and order a fine meal and then say i'm going to start cutting back right now. i'm not going to pay for that meal. you already ate it, babe! right? >> that's right. how fiscally conservative for them to say we're not going to pay that. let's just clear up this false equivalency that i think it was the first or second question who made the point at the press conference yesterday well, you voted against the debt ceiling in 2006 so what's the deal? look this is -- 2010 -- 2011, after the 2010 election, the whole tea party wave was the first time that you saw republicans hold it hostage. and say unless you do what we want we're not raising the debt ceiling. democrats have never done that.

for the president and taxes. after releasing a ridiculous ad going after the president's children, the nra is attacking again, this time via a fund-raising email, claiming the president is raising $20 million to jam his anti-gun agenda through congress and accuses the administration of trying to quote reduce your freedom to ashes. i warns of mandatory gun confiscation, and a forced buyback program. it sounds a lot like death panels, and the president is not acting alone. president obama is working alongside his rich gun hating friends in hollywood, and michael bloomberg. they fail to mention he is also the mayor of new york city. we're back after the break. arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport.

guards at their school. mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for ours. >> bill: now unless i didn't hear it correctly, there were three times there where he's talking about the president's kids. >> sure. as anyone who follows politics knows, that is an area that's really considered off-limits when you're talking about children of the president. so whether to make a point -- i understand this is a debate about children but i think most of the observers looking at david keen said this is not about the children. it is about the arguments that -- >> bill: he would only say that if he were getting a lot of flack because of it. he must be getting some flack even from nra supporters who said drop that ad. enough is enough. >> it is important to bear in mind it is a web-only ad. it was more put throughout to stir this kind of debate about the gun issue rather than actually focusing in on the president's proposal. >> bill: let's get to the political
